I'd rather create the shape based on the actual measurements, but I don't have to have them. I'm not looking to do a copy or replica, just something close to that shape.
Robert and John Thomas (jt1) probably have measurements. Without putting words in his mouth John might be willing to share. Same with Burton. Worst case scenario is that when I have the guitar in hand I could whip out some values for you.
